ECO Camps

Summer campers are taught how to handle butterfly nets before heading out to explore.

The rare Charitable Research Reserve is proud to host both March Break ECO Camp and Summer ECO Camps for children ages 6-12.

Based out of our environmental education hub, the rare ECO Centre, children explore limestone cliffs, hike the trails of our old growth forest, practice organic/alternative gardening, and take part in a hands-on search for a variety of species during these fun-filled weeks. From pond-dipping for tadpoles to calling for birds, catching exotic species of butterflies and identifying a variety of snakes, there is no time for boredom.

Our rare ECO Camps provide children the opportunity to develop the knowledge, skills, values, and motivation necessary to become environmentally-responsible citizens – all while having fun. As with our school-based programs, not only do these opportunities build critical thinking and scientific inquiry skills, they help young people form a bond with the natural world, encouraging them to be better custodians of the landscape. Benefits of this program include environmental education, contributions to physical health and well-being, and development of personal and social skills.

Explore rare through the eyes of your children when you enroll them in one of our rare ECO Camps!
